Empire was an English rock band that was intermittently active between 1974 and about 1980. The two constants of the band were the briefly married team of ex-Yes/Flash guitarist Peter Banks and vocalist Sydney Foxx. Despite recording three albums, none saw release until One Way Records green-lighted the material in the mid-1990s.
